A boy in Kakute, Uganda, receives a deworming tablet from U.S. Army Capt. Courtney Legendre, a physician assistant with the 411th Civil Affairs Battalion (411th CA BN), in support of Combined Joint Task Force-Horn of Africa (CJTF-HOA), April 23, 2013. The tablets treat parasitic infections, common in Kakute, often caused by poorly sanitized water and food sources. In addition to distributing tablets, military members from CJTF-HOA and the Uganda People's Defense Force (UPDF) shared information about effective water and food hygiene practices to help prevent the spread of diseases. The event was part of One Health, a whole-of-government program coordinated by the Ugandan government, UPDF, U.S. Agency for International Development, U.S. State Department, U.S. Embassy in Uganda and CJTF-HOA to help strengthen Uganda's healthcare capabilities.
